Producers and products
Producers and Products

  • “The success of EOI has been significantly guaranteed by the concomitant militarization of these nation-states” (169)

  • WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War  R&R zones of Thailand, South Korea & Philippines

  • Militarization/Prostitution  Tourism/EOI (“development”)

    • “sex workers can be said to perform a kind of export-oriented labor” (175)


Space time dis continuums
Space/Time (Dis)Continuums

  • Assumed universal linear trajectory of capitalist growth

    • Feudalism  mercantilism  industrial capitalism  globalized capitalism

  • Temporal lag necessitates development (177)

    • FTZs & EPZs = locations out of time and space (178)

  • Contradictory “anachronisms”

    • Service-industries precede industrialization in “less developed countries” (180)

    • Return of (informal, flexible) manufacturing to core (181)


Asian women
“Asian” Women

  • Multiple Asias

    • “the uneven development of transnational capitalism necessitates the breakdown and multiple specification of ‘Asia’ into ‘South,’ ‘East’, and ‘Southeast’ Asias” (185)

    • Ex. Japanese TNCs, Thai sex workers (186)

  • Monolithic constructions (192):

    • Young

    • Unskilled

    • Nimble/Docile

  • What of Asian/American women (197)?


Disciplined embodiments
Disciplined Embodiments

  • Photography, documentary, ethnography  (failed) attempts to access truth of experience

  • “I wish to trouble the positivist assumption that their complexities can be readily accessed and communicated truthfully and objectively, and, consequently, that ‘uncovering’ and ‘reporting’ about them are necessarily empowering and liberatory gestures… the most well-intended representations are also forcefully partial and disciplinarily situated” (165)

  • Is no representation innocent?
